Small Harvest from Ada Apiary.

8-28-2011

Went to my Ada apiary with my dad today. Leveled the small top bar hive that was slowly tilting sideways on the blocks it was sitting on. Also, harvested a bit of honey. Got about 12 lbs of honey and comb to crush and strain. Did loose half a comb when it broke loose and dropped over the side of my bucket.

Found one small hive beetle in each of my 2 langstroth hives. Put a beetle blaster beetle trap into each hive. Hopefully this will catch a few of these nasty little pests.

    The beetle traps do work. This updated should have been done last fall. I found 20-24 beetles in each trap. The traps are designed to be throw away once they are full of beetles. 2024 beetles by no means fills up the trap. I have talked to a few other beekeepers that wash the traps out under fast running water. Not all of the dead beetles can be removed, but it does clear up the trap for reuse.
